Nurse Spin

2swirlI’ve tried to reel myself in on the best of what I know that would be helpful to nurses today. I struggle with this because of my contorted view of nursing. I am grateful and proud to have been trained and to have enjoyed a paid career as a nurse,in my case a registered nurse.

Stay

    Sweet Honey & the Rock’s beautiful accapella harmony of Stay a Little Longer is about urging a lover to remain, stay a little longer, staaay a little looonger with me.
    I recall
    The sweetness and stickiness of love
    The pull the connection
    The pain of separation
    Staaay. Staaay a little looonger. Stay a little longer with me.

    Remember the warmth, the thickness of the air
    Stroking that soft depression left in the mattress
    Caressing the sheets and comforter in idle reverie.
    Staaay. Staaay a little looonger. Stay a little longer with me.

    As the years go by, when there’s less sticky sweetness
    Air more dry and cool
    Sheets less rumpled
    When I reach for you and you are there
    I still recall the chorus
    Staaay. Staaay a little looonger. Stay a little longer with me.

    We still share memories of our lusty lovers past
    While learning to find new sweetness to share.
    There’s great comfort in each others companion.
    A reason to get up, to work, and want to come home again.

    So please, please, please
    Staaay. Staaay a little looonger. Stay a little longer with me. 2013-03-04 17.53.08
